Bone grafting is designed to augment and strengthen the jawbone. This procedure becomes necessary when the jaw lacks sufficient bone density to support dental implants or other restorative treatments.

Why Bone Grafting is Needed

Various factors, including tooth loss, periodontal disease or trauma, can result in a loss of bone density. Without adequate bone support, placing dental implants becomes challenging. Bone grafting addresses this issue by enhancing the bone structure, providing a stable foundation for subsequent dental procedures.

The Bone Grafting Process

During a bone grafting procedure, Dr. Anne Casson carefully places bone graft material at the deficient site. This material may be sourced from the patient, a donor or synthetic options. Over time, the graft integrates with the existing bone, promoting regeneration and increasing bone density.

Types of Bone Grafts

There are various types of bone grafts, including autografts, allografts and xenografts, each with its own advantages and considerations. Our dentist and team will determine the most suitable graft type based on your unique needs.

Benefits of Bone Grafting

Bone grafting not only facilitates the success of dental implants but also prevents further bone loss, preserves facial structure and improves overall oral health.
